- Research Library
Our research library provides access to an unrivaled collection of primary and secondary sources, including books and journals, manuscripts, maps, broadsides, and sheet music related to the history and culture of Virginia.
The Reading Room
The Reading Room is open to all, from the curious visitor to the professional researcher. Our library collection is non-circulating, and all library materials may only be examined in the Reading Room. Researchers who are unable to visit in person are able to request limited digital scans of portions of published works and manuscript collections for research purposes.
